Big fine for Ma­gog car surfers

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Ma­gog

Last­week, the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog re­ceived nu­mer­ous phonecalls re­port­ing that some­one was driv­ing a car around the park­ing lot of La Ruche high school while a per­son ‘car-surfed’ on its hood. The driver and the car surfer, aged nine­teen and eigh­teen, were iden­ti­fied and each re­ceived a fine of $1,260 and had their li­censes sus­pended for seven days.

The fine for this ex­tremely dan­ger­ous ac­tiv­ity was in­creased a few years ago from $30 to $1000 to dis­suade peo­ple from do­ing it af­ter it be­came pop­u­lar. Many peo­ple who tried it were badly hurt, some­times with fatal in­juries as was the case for a young Ma­gog man.
